HOYS .AND BUSINESS.
This a vtry practical age, and
one who does not get practical ideas
of life will' never succeed at any
thing. No boy is educated in the
true sense of the term who is not
able to provide for himself and take
care of those who are dependent
upon him. A sebool lhat does not
teach children bow to manage prac
tical business affairs and make an
honest living for themselves and
others who are dependent upon them
is not the kind of school to send
children to. Information lhat can
not be utilized in the practical
duties of life is oftener a hindrance
than help to one who has it. No
one knows anything worth men
tioning who does uot kuow how to
do something that is of some value
to the world.

According to Mariaii Kent, who writes
on fashions for young eirls, in the March
New Idcn Magazine, the dsinty dresses
for this spring and summer are to be
made ofsilk-finished mohair, lansdonne
but isle and eolienne, besides the soft
silks and the sheer fabrics. Hand-work
in its charming simplicity still super
sedes elaborate trimmings, and ''very
many dainty frocks are made entirely of
the material, utterly devoid of trimming
and depending soley for decoration on
the exquisite workmanship in the form
of hand-run tucks, shirring, fagoting,
piping, etc." Tokes, cut round or square
arc to be used a great deal, and the "drop
yoke;" as well as berthas and epaulets,
will keep the broad-shoulded effect
still prominent. The skirls are to be still
full according with the prevalent "1830'
ideas in clothes. Everything that can
be dons to a sleeve will be in fashion,
aad pun's, shirrings and rufflss will
hinder tne very radid arrival of the leg
mutton, which is again coming to
view.

RICE AND CANE INDUSTRY
IN JACKSON COUNTY.
That the country distriot of Jack
nnuntv are keepine up with tlif
march of progress is evident by
the good reports that come to
us from a gentlemen who have
traveled through the county quite
recently. The sheep growers are
increasing their flocks the log
men are floating more logs to the
mills, the charcoal burners are burn
ing more coal than evey before and
much greater interest is being taken
in agricultural pursuits,
Two new crops that are great
now receiving the attention of our
farmers are wane and rice, the two
crops have been found to pay band-
some returns on a small acreage
hack from Ocean Spriugs, about
ten miles, several tanners planted
sane and rice last year and grew
abudant crops. If our infor
mation is correct, we bave no
mm 1 1
reason to doubt that there is a great
future for the oane and rioe industry

A FEW POINTERS TO MER
CHANTS.
Misrepresentation is the suicide
of trade don't misrepresent.
If your goods make your prices
look small advertise your goods.
If you can make a little money
feel big at your store, don't keep it
to yourself.
If you bave goods "out of sight"
put them 'in sight.
If you desire your name to
become a by tword with" the
people keep it in the colmuns.of the
newspaper. v
If a good, bargain is. talked about
it is your best advertisement.
If 'you sell to sell again, - then
advertise what yon wain to soli.
If "what you.vfaiit is here" t lien
let the "people know where 'here'
canbe, found. , '
If ita - "our pleasure to please V
ymi, thi'irlet the buyers know who
it is that wants to please them
If you have "goods cheap" and
advertise them.
If it's a good bargain for the buyer
and a gain for the merchant, why
not let the buyers know about it?
If you want to make your store
thepeple.s store, why don, t you so
tell them?
A LIE NAILED.
For the benefit of a few who
seem to have got a contrary impres
sion, I wish to state that I am the
author of and am entirely respon
sible for all editorial matter appear
ing in The Progress. Soma has
started a story about tiwn that
other persons beside myself are
pecuniarily interested in The Prog
ress, the intent is to create prejudice
against the paper. The statement
is untruthful and I wish to brand it
as such. I am the sole editor and
proprietor of The Progress.

BENT HER DOUBLE.
"I knew no one, for four weeks, when
I was sick with typhoid and kidney
trouble," writes Mrs. Annie Hunter, of
Pittsburg, Pa., "and when I got better,
although I had one of the best doctors
could get, I was bent double, and had
to rest my bands on my knees when I
walked. From this terrible affliction I
was rescued by electric Bitters, which
restored my health aud strength, and
now I can walk as straight as eyer.

Br. Virchow, the eminent man ef
science, hod been sharply criticising
Prince Bismarck, who was than
chancellor.
At the end of a particularly severe
attack Bismarck felt himself person
ally affronted and sent seconds to Vir
chow with a challenge to fight a
duel.
The man of science was found fn
his laboratory, hard at work at ex
periments which had for their object
the discovery of a means of destroy
ing trichinae, which were Eiakin?
great ravages in Germany.
"Ah," said the doctor, "a chal
lenge from Prince Bismarck, eh;
Well, well! As I am the challenged
party, I suppose I have the choice of
weapons. Here they are!"
He held up two large sausages,
which seemed to be exactly alike.
"One of these sausages," he said.
"ia filled with trichinae; it is deadly.
The other is perfectly wholesome
Externally they can't be told apart
Let his excellency K me the honor
to choose whichever of these he
wishes ani eat it, and I will eat the
other I"
Though the proposition was as rea
sonable a any duelling proposition
could m, Prince Bismarck's repre
sentative refused it No duel was
fought, and an one accused Virchow

was sublime when Elaine, aged 5, the
baby of the household, appeared in

his daughter just showing within the

"What a beautiful hand, mamma)

of the author. Scipio was wont to
say he was never less alone than
when alone and never less at leisure
than when at leisure, surrounded as
he was by the silent companionship
of writers and his own hopes and
fears. But "this regular giddy swirl
of frivolous dissipation," as the Bos
ton girl calls it, does not lend itself
easily to cozy evenings by an open
grate fire with one's favorite authors.
It is quite a question if the rush of
lectures, talks and readings which ia
arranged to satisfy the intellectual
cravings of society at all atones for
the loss of that culture which comes
from quiet and persistent study of
the best writers. This explains why
so often in small country towns,
where there seems to be a dearth of
social doings, we will meet so many
cultivated women who are abreast

The trees of parks and avenues are

Juggling with fire was practiced to
very ancient times. Many of tha
tricks of that sort which are beat
known today were employed to'Ido
seive the vulgar thousands of year
ago. There is nothing even not
which does more to excite the aatoav
Ishment of the Ignorant than the
breathing of flame, which is a decep
tion handed down from remote an
tiquity. .
When the slaves In Sicily rose' tn
rebellion about ISO B. C. and took
cruel revenge for the wrongs 'they
had suffered, thesevwas among them
a Syrian named Eunus. He was a
man of great craft and courage, and
having seen much of the world he
had become acquainted with a variety
of little known arts. He pretended
to have immediate communication
with the gods, and as is usual in such
cases, he confirmed his divine maV
sion oy miracles. When desirous of
Inspiring his followers with courage,
he breathed flames and sparks siai iesj
them from, his rnout : -
It U said that, in ortW fetfwtfewa
this marvel, Eunus pierced a nut
shell at both ends, and 'having filled
it with some burning substance he
put it into his mouth aad breathed

formed much better nowadays. The
juggler rolls together some flax ot
hemp into a ball about the size of a
walnut which he sets en fire, per

tie. ball for a Ionia time. Whes
is ready to do his act he slips the
ball into his mouth anpereeived and
breathes through it His breath re
vives the fire, so that spark proceed
from it, and the performer sustains
no injury 6 long as he inhales his
breath through Ms nostrils only. By
this art the Rafebi Bar-Coobeba, ia
the reign of the Roman emperor
Hadrian, made the credulous He
brews believe that he was the long
looked for Messiah.
Various theories have been ad
vanced to account for the other feats
mentioned. It will be remembered
that during the middle ages the guilt
or Innocence of persons accused of
crimes was often determined by or-.
deal, the defendant being obliged to
hold a piece of redhot iron in his
hand. This was another case of jug
gling, such trials being conducted by
priests, who covered the hands of
those whom they desired should s
oape with a protective paste. A sola

"Out orohestra," Julius Etchbsij

At the same stand with my teaches,
who was concert master, an old
gentleman played. He was not leas
tkwn 80 yvrs old, and could, under
no circumstances, be made to play on
time. He aluo had an unhappy ma
nia of imitating the chirping of Uttl (
birds upon his violin. Our first oboe
player had a little dog Fido by name
-which generally accompanied its
master to rehearsals, and bad been
trainod to give the A when it was
required. As the director asked the
oboeist one day to sound A, this little
dogincited, I suppose, by some wag
among the musicians gave it in a
shrill whino that convulsed the or
